Sept. 4, 2018 - Katherine Oliver

VCU School of Business mourns the passing of H. David Willis, 91, founding chair of our Department of Accounting. He taught for 42 years at the high school and college levels. 

As a testament to the lifelong impact he made on his students, in 2009, alumni and friends came together to establish the H. David Willis Scholarship Endowment and a room is named after him in Snead Hall.

A visitation will be held at Nelsen Funeral Home on 4650 S. Laburnum Ave., from 4 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, September 5, with a entombment at Hollywood Cemetery Mausoleum at 10 a.m. on Thursday, September 6.
